Parmesan Basil Farmhouse Crackers By Kari Lewis


  • 1½ cup Gary’s True Grit™ Einkorn Flour
  • 1½ teaspoons cream of tartar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1–2 tablespoons dried basil
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 1–2 drops Basil Vitality™ essential oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons organic evaporated cane juice crystals
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine first six ingredients and mix well. Add oil and stir until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add water and Basil Vitality and stir until a soft dough forms.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, cane juice crystals, and vinegar. Set aside.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out very thin. Brush with egg mixture. Use cookie cutters to make any cracker shape you like or cut into squares with a paring knife. Transfer to baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, depending on size and thickness of your crackers, then broil until lightly browned.
  6. Store in an airtight container. If the crackers pick up moisture and lose their crispness, just bake them briefly in a 250°F oven for a few minutes.
